TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Henry Wesley, Royal Astronomical Society
Date10 May 1897
DescriptionNothing has yet been settled with regard to a meeting of the National Consultative Committee regarding the 'International Catalogue [of Scientific Papers]', as there has been no meeting of the General Committee of the Royal Society since the invitations were sent out. A meeting of the latter Committee, will however, be held on Friday next, when the responses to the invitations will be reported and probably some definite steps taken for a meeting of the Consultative Committee.

As a post script notes that 'the people' are beginning to clamour for the Eclipse drawing for [George] Baden-Powell's paper. On the 12th March Wesley said that he wanted at least a month but he has now had nearly two.
